Intellectual Property: Economic and Legal Dimensions of Rights and Remedies
Cambridge University Press, May 2, 2005 - Business & Economics - 304 pages
This book addresses several aspects of the law and economics of intellectual property rights (IPRs) that have been underanalyzed in the existing literature. The authors demonstrate that the core assumption of IPR regimes--that IPRs maximize certain social benefits over social costs by providing a necessary inducement for the production and distribution of intellectual products--has several important implications for the optimal design of remedies, the standard of care, and the law of standing and joinder.
